SOLD OUT! Exclusive Tour: Wickedness & Funny Business

August 4, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm MDT

Tours & Toddies Exclusive Tour
Wickedness and Funny Business in the Red Light Communities of the West

Please note: this tour is SOLD OUT. Information coming soon on our next Tours & Toddies event on September 15.

With Siriana Lundgren

August 4, 2023
6–8 p.m.

Join Exclusive Tours staff August 4 at 6 p.m. to explore the hidden histories of red light districts across the American West. Learn about the madams, saloon owners, dancers, and more who would change the course of the American West through their wickedness and funny business.

During this premium 2-hour event, Siriana Lundgren, PhD candidate and the 2023 Exclusive Tours Intern, shares facts, stories, and tidbits from her dissertation on Western Red Light Districts. Discover the darker sides of western boom towns and the hidden communities that defied the odds (and society’s rules) to make their mark on the American West.

History comes alive through the artifacts and activities featured during this Tours & Toddies. Participants will have the opportunity to team up with other attendees to play a game where you take on a historical character and work to build a community together while facing the challenges of historical red light districts across Montana, Nevada, and South Dakota.

This tour is now sold out. 

Cost is $60 per person or $55 for Center of the West members.
